In 2013, the town gained notoriety after a strange and twisted case unraveled. It began in 1987, when a former Christian couple, The Jones', lost their young son to cancer. To make others feel their pain, they began kidnapping, and often murdering children to make their families lose faith in God. Their first victim was 6 year old Barry Milland, who was drugged so heavily that he lost his mind and can't remember his past life; Barry lived with the Jones' for the next 26 years, posing as their nephew Alex Jones. Over the years, the Jones' kidnapped and murdered 16 children. During this time, they kidnapped a boy named Bobby Taylor, who escaped after 3 weeks but became obsessed with mazes; during their reign, the Jones' drugged children and made them solve hard mazes, and if they solved the last maze, they can go home. In 2008, Mr. Jones disappeared, and he was murdered by a local priest to stop the war on God.
